sparklyG 's Thoughts:

Didn’t have much time today for pictures, so just ran out on the stairs to make these shots of my today’s loungy home attire between working on some projects.

I love wearing this sweater by Tiger of Sweden. It is BFs (yes, I borrow a lot of his stuff, the dude’s got a bunch of style which is lucky cos it expands my wardrobe immensely :) and looks on me like a sweater dress. It is also super-soft and feels really great on the skin. I can’t spray any perfume on it though – don’t want my darling to smell like Burberry the Beat :D

I had a couple minutes to finally rip up some leggings (aka the uniformal mark of a good taste these days), gotta own a pair of those ;) and wearing ‘em over flowery lace tights. The top under the sweater is also lacy, I will make a post where it’s visible soon too.
The accessories are an eclectic bunch, some are Accessorize, some are presents, some vintage, some DIY like the coin-on-the-black-rope necklace. A very special one is army tags I’ve found about a year ago. Didn’t know where to return them, so decided to keep them as a necklace. I hope the former owner doesn’t need them anymore and hasn’t actually been in a war…

The outfit is a reminiscence of the wild punk days of my youth. Well, I never was a real, true-to-the stereotype hardcore punk, but I liked the music and the aesthetics of the whole subculture. Still like it actually. Ah, the memories of my snobby high school headmistress telling me off for my outfits and make-up. XD
So cool that punk is in fashion!

Speaking of sweater-dresses, I’ve posted this new design on my fashion sketch blog SPARKLYGREY.WORDPRESS.COM , you guys are always welcome to drop by and leave your feedback! :)
